About Dean & Lisa Warriner

We live in beautiful Beaumaris in Anglesey, North Wales and are a family of 5, we love our apartment as it's like home from home, the weather is nearly always sunny and the journey time is so reasonable. We have an online estate agency warriners.co.uk and this keeps us nice and busy but there are times when it's lovely to get away even if it's just a long weekend. The kids are growing up quickly, our daughter Anneliese is now 24 and works in Hong Kong and our 2 sons Adam and Kieran are now working. We always like to take Jean my mother in law who is a keen traveller and great fun to have around.

Why Dean & Lisa Warriner chose Tavira region

The great thing about the apartment, is that it is spacious and very comfortable with direct access from the private terrace to the pool. The area is great whether you are into just strolling to a nearby bar/restaurant, want to be within easy walking distance of the beach or are a keen golfer (Benamor GC is just across the main road) Conceicao railway station is also just down the road and provides an easy link to the algarve coastal towns.

This is an excellent apartment, spotlessly clean and really well equipped with everything you need. It has two good sized bedrooms, an en-suite and a separate bathroom, and a kitchen area with a comfortable living room looking out to the pool.

The apartment manager who met us on arrival was really helpful and and made himself easily accessible throughout our holiday if we had any questions or problems.

The apartment is about 15-20 minutes walk to Cabanas which is a lovely resort with a stunning beach and delightful places to eat. The train station is a 5 minute walk from the apartment and we used it every day to explore Fuseta, Tavira, Olhao, Monte Gordo,Vila Real San Antonio and over to Ayamonte in Spain all of which are beautiful.

The owners of the apartment were extremely helpful when booking and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend staying in this apartment and hopefully will return in the future.

Good sized property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our boys aged 19 and 17 , the rooms were of a good size , both bedrooms had their own en suite bathroom . Air conditioning was good and TV had BBC 1 and ITV plus Sky News to let you keep in touch with the news if required . Access to the pool was perfect and the outside area / balcony was a suntrap between 4pm and 7pm , perfect for a late afternoon drink . Kitchen had plenty of utensils , plates etc and cleaning equipment with washing machine in utility .The supermarket was 5 mins walk along with some bars and restaurants . The walk into Canbanhas was 20 minutes and in some areas were void of footpaths . The boardwalk on the river at Cabanhas was lively and there were plenty of restaurant and bar options . The beach was packed and didnt really look safe for swimming due to the size of the tidal waves . The train station at Cabanhas offers access to the whole of the Algarve coast - train we used was 20 mins late . Really relaxed holiday - would use again . Jeff and Wendy gave us a tour round on the first night and were very helpful throughout our stay .

An outstanding apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this apartment. It was incredibly well furnished, clean and spacious. It was equipped with everything needed to have a great holiday. It was clearly someone's home from home and was maintained to a very high standard. We had great communication from the owners and the property managers were always on hand if required. We have a young family and spent a lot of time around the pool, which was never busy. Would recommend spending some time in Tavira which was a lovely town and we preferred Barril Beach to Cabanas as it was a bit quieter but both were lovely. We would highly recommend this apartment.

This apt is lovely,very spacious,two large bedrooms and huge wardrobes,two bathrooms and a lovely well furnished lounge.The patio area outside is huge with plenty of space for a table and four chairs and sunloungers.It is on the groundfloor and ideal if the children are at the swimming pool as you can keep a close eye on them.There is a supermarket chemist and bar within 5 minutes walk and the front at cabanas with many bars and resturants is a 15 minutes walk,5 minutes by car.Highly recommended.

Great appartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was great, and was very clean. The owner provided good directions and location if services etc. we would definitely recommend this property. The best restaurant was the Vert in located close by. Plenty of restaurants in Cabanas and Tavira was a beautiful town to walk round which was a short taxi or train ride.

From the Owner

The great thing about the apartment, is that it is spacious and very comfortable with direct access from the private terrace to the pool. The area is great whether you are into just strolling to a nearby bar/restaurant, want to be within easy walking distance of the beach or are a keen golfer (Benamor GC is just across the main road) Conceicao railway station is also just down the road and provides an easy link to the algarve coastal towns.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Various at 500 Metres Nearest Golf : Benamor at 1 Kilometres Nearest Train : Conceicao at 500 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Various at 1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Cabanas at 2 Kilometres

Special interest holidays:

Cabanas is in a protected nature reserve called the Ria Formosa which makes the area excellent for Walking, Bird watching, Swimming, Cycling and Fishing.


The apartment is a 10-15 minute walk from Cabanas Waterfront with its new Boardwalk Promenade. The delightful white sandy beach at Cabanas is reached by taking a 2 minute taxi-boat ride, which transports passengers all day across the estuary of the Rio Formosa to the far side of the sand bank. Cabanas has clear water and is a blue flag beach which is rarely overcrowded with gorgeous golden sand and blue lagoons. The beach is well served by amenities including a beach cafe.


Most budget airlines fly to Faro which is only half an hour by road. Conceicao Railway station is within only a few minutes walking distance from the apartment, this railway covers the length of the Algarve from from the far west Algarve to Spain in the east. There are plenty of car hire companies at the airport or you could arrange to hire a car more locally for a few days.


Reefcat Fishing (Vila Real de Saint Antonio - 15 Kms)

A Deep sea Fishing Experience-Shark, Tuna, Blue and White Marlin and many more..

Aqualand-Waterpark,..The BIG one...Located in Central Algarve near the town of Alcantarilha, 15 kms from Albufeira.

Further Details:

Nearby Tavira is called "The prettiest town" in Portugal by the Portuguese. Located 25 kms from Faro and 20 Kms from Spain, it is a firm favourite for discerning visitors. Tavira is an ancient town with a Phoenician, Roman and Moorish past. It has a castle, over 35 churches and a superb seven arch Roman Bridge. On both sides of the River Gilao you can find good shopping with local produce, including fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, basket ware, pottery, ceramic tiles, wrought iron work and cork and shell handicrafts. Friendly locals welcome you, important whether you are just browsing or wining and dining in the many bars and restaurants, on the river front or in the fascinating cobbled streets. A short Ferry trip takes you to the Ilha de Tavira to one of the best beaches along the entire coast. Clean, safe bathing protected by the offshore sandbars is complimented by the few cafes and bars. Some 7kms of soft sand easily accommodates all the sun bathers, swimmers, windsurfers and sailors even in peak season. The scenic location of Tavira, protected by its natural lagoon, offers tranquility and the opportunity to observe nature and birdlife at its best. Those with a car, why not travel north to visit the wonderful city of Lisbon or venture east over the nearby spanish border and visit the andalusian favourite of Seville (a beautiful city with magnificent architecture).
